The condition of the only crematorium for Hindus living within the Canacona Municipal Council is getting worse day by day with the Canacona Municipal Council apparently failing to maintain it as shrubs and creepers abound and have literally taken over the burial grounds.
Although residents of Canacona were promised a new crematorium at the last elections, till date nothing appears to be done. Worse still is the fact that since the new crematorium has not yet been sanctioned, the existing one should have been maintained properly. But alas! That is not happening.
And though Canacona Municipal Council Chairperson Shyamsunder Dessai clarified that the technical sanction for the new crematorium is sanctioned, since no work is visible, it is presumed that the council slept over the matter and will probably waken up when the elections are announced shortly.
